    Now this is speaking from a DEVELOPER point of view.

    Would you like to see iPhone exclusivity stop? To me, yes, obviously, because this means the App Store can be in more hands, and my apps can have a MUCH MUCH larger audience. Yes I know there is a lot of market share already, but look at VZW, T-Mob etc and if we got their eyes on our apps,...you should be able to fill in the rest.

    What do you think from a developer point of view?

    So you mean carrier exclusivity, not Apples dev tools exclusivity...right? (AKA Apple vs Adobe)

    Yes carrier exclusivity, to get our apps into more hands, could care less for the Adobe thing because i develop with Apple's dev tools anyway

    Well of course, they'll want it. Its kind of obvious isn't it. I don't want to sound harsh but why start a thread that you already know the answer.

    Wouldn't it be ludicrous to hear a developer say they don't more people to buy their apps?

    I'm a developer, although it's only a hobby and I personally don't care. The only app I sell targets UK/London and we have a pretty much free choice of carrier.

    Are you forgetting iPod touch user's can access your apps too?
